On Thursday 10th March, Glug Birmingham is back at Spotlight & Nextdoor in Digbeth and we’re super excited to reveal what we have in store!
For our 4th event we're bringing you the 'Craft & Graft' edition - with talks by agencies, publishers, small studios and freelancers - each with a different perspective on the creative industry and a unique story to tell.
We'll be bringing a flurry of activity to the newly refurbished NextDoor alongside a revamped Glug marketplace for 2016.
Tickets for 'Craft & Graft' Part 2 (June 2016) will be on sale in mid-March with headline speaker Supermundane and Isabel + Helen.
